Antique stone sinks and troughs are not only beautiful, they are an immensely powerful means of importing true old world ambiance and elegance to any space.Architectural salvage is almost like an interior design hidden-in-plain-sight secret. It can be found nearly everywhere with a bit of patience & determination. Not only that, it can be amazingly inexpensive (like, free to those who are resourceful and willing to repurpose). It can also be a definite but worthwhile splurge, if you decide to use those pros who specialize in ancient surfaces and artifacts, and who’ll do the bulk of the work for you, bringing stone troughs from demolished Provençal stables, patinaed marble basins from derelict, ancient Italian villas, enameled beauties, from overhauled hotels, and chateaux bits and pieces...sourced, shipped, made ready for a new life, in a new home. However you source them, though, they are well worth the effort and cost. Newly created sinks and basins can be gorgeous as well, but antique stone sinks, like the really wonderful one above, import the gravitas of the ancient and rescued, presence, the charm of a unique history, and the hue and tone that time bestows.
